It was really hard to believe that it had been a year since my last visit and 7 whole years since I got married at the Peninsula. It was really a great decision to go back for a meal at such a time in life. There were just so many good old memories at lovely Peninsula.

I was the first to arrive at the restaurant for lunch on a week day. We managed to occupy the best (we believed) table of the restaurant overlooking the whole restaurant. The interior decoration of the restaurant remained so antique and beautiful, really one of the best decorated restaurants in Hong Kong.

Each of us decided to order a lunch set which included your choice of a appetizer, a mains and a dessert, and also coffee/tea, Petits fours and a glass of white, rose or red wine or even juice, at a cost of $628+10%. Quite a good deal right? And yet the restaurant was not full, maybe just half-occupied during our visit.

Very soon after our orders had been taken, a handsome French (I believed to be with his French accent) server brought a full basket of freshly baked bakeries for us to fill our stomach. There were 3 types: namely onion and bacon roll, charcoal bread (the official name seemed to be longer), and French baguette. As a big bread fans, I tried all three types of course. 
Last year, there were only two choices of 1. onion and bacon roll and 2. French baguette with a small basket of white bread offered on your table. I was quite surprised to see one more choice this year. 
The onion and bacon roll was very crispy and smelt so good. The level of salty-ness was of the right degree with appropriate amount of bacon crisps. Surprisingly, it was not so oily! 
The charcoal bread was my lunch partner's favourite. It was so buttery and soft, and it smelt very good too. It had a very thin slightly crispy coating and it was so ductile. The layered charcoal pattern was so pretty.
The French baguette was very crispy. 
The bakeries were not very warm but warm enough when served.
Two types of butter were served, salted and unsalted on a very pretty plate.

For welcome drink, I ordered warm water. Like last year, they were so considerate to serve warm water in such a glass so that it wouldn't burn my hands. While my lunch partner had ordered red wine, I ordered pineapple juice instead. There were so many choices of juices, including orange, apple, mango, carrot, tomato, grapefruit and pineapple. The pineapple juice seemed to be freshly squeezed with pineapple fibres at the bottom. My lunch partner said that his red wine was no good. Ok it was complimentary haha!

I was so amused at their Amuse bouche, because last year there was no amuse bouche. And it was more pleasing than those I recently had at other French restaurants of comparable ranking. It was so nicely presented. The salmon seemed fresh although I couldn't find much avocado in it but just the colour. 

There were so many choices of appetisers. The server did introduce our appetisers to us in some details when served to us.

Melted duck liver on Jerusalem artichoke custard, roasted hazelnuts and Port jus

I didn't fancy how they made this duck liver compared with the "usual" way of serving with some sweet and sour fruity ingredients to balance the oiliness. I am not saying that this dish was oily. But it was a little bit slightly overly salty to me. The Jerusalem artichoke custard was very interesting as it was like steamed custard. The duck liver was really smooth indeed although it didn't really melt in my mouth. I also liked how the roasted hazelnuts and some crispy toasts added texture to the dish. Yet maybe it was just not my cup of tea. My lunch partner said it was ok though so it was really subjective.

Crispy crab meat donut with beetroot and lemon curd

I liked this one more than the other appetiser! Although the donut wasn't particularly crispy, the sauce was sweet and sour which was really appetising and went well with the crab meat donut. It was interesting that the flavour of the beetroot wasn't very strong either. We were told that there was some curry sauce inside the donut which was really very mild. It would have been even better if the crab meat flavour could have been richer! Please note the really nicely prepared presentation of the sauce on the plate like a net. It was really appreciated!

For mains, we both ordered the meat dishes.

Slow-cooked Kurobuta pork tenderloin glazed with black garlic and honey, potato gnocchi and chorizo

It was suggested that the pork tenderloin should be medium and we took this recommendation. The pork tenderloin was really so well-cooked that it was so tender and juicy. Definitely one of the best pork dishes I had ever had, with a thin crispy coating and tender and juicy interior. The black garlic and honey sauce was really delicious. The potato gnocchi was quite chewy and interesting with some chorizo crisps added on top. There were two pieces of crispy crackers to add some texture to the dish but they were not so crispy - tasted like having absorbed some moisture. Anyway, a really good dish overall.

Grilled US striploin topped with caramelised onions and mustard, braised carrots with cardamom

I found this mains pretty good as well although not as outstanding as the pork tenderloin. My lunch partner didn't find this dish as good though. He said it was too salty, but there was no problem with the pieces I shared. The US striploin was recommended to be served medium and I think the texture was good - tender and juicy. My lunch partner said it could have been richer in terms of the flavour of the beef. The caramelised onions on top of the striploin helped add some crispy texture. The braised carrots tasted really good with a very delicious and appetising sauce! 

I liked all three choices of desserts on their menu and it was a bit hard to make up my mind.

Black forest, chocolate crumble with milk chocolate cream and morello cherries

I really liked chocolate crumble but I was usually put off by black forest. However, my crave for chocolate had overcome my fear of the black forest and alcohol-soaked cherries. I was glad that I had decided to pick this dessert. I liked this combo of crunchy chocolate crumbles with really smooth milk chocolate cream and chocolate ice-cream. The big and small chocolate "elastic" cream balls were so interesting. There were some chocolate cake pieces together with fresh cherries. Overall, there were so many different textures in this dessert. I wish there could have been more chocolate crumbles, but maybe it was the best combo as we didn't feel oily or over-fed after finishing the whole plate - although it was shared by the two of us.

Cinnamon panna cotta, orange whipped cream with citrus and spice tea ice cream

This one was more disappointing but actually still quite delicious. It was disappointing because the flavours of cinnamon, orange and tea were all lacking. But the panna cotta itself was really smooth and of the right degree of sweetness. We couldn't find ice cream in this dessert as mentioned in the menu. There seemed to be a thin slice of white chocolate on top of the panna cotta to add some textures to the dessert. The small creams on the side were not too greasy and quite tasty. I would like to give this dish a rating of 3.5.

Coffee/tea was included in the lunch set and as always we ordered iced chocolate with skimmed milk.

Iced chocolate with skimmed milk

Unlike last time, this time the iced chocolates were much bigger and way better. There were quite some chocolate chips on top and it was so dense despite using skimmed milk.

The Petits fours were more disappointing this time because they were no longer served on a very lovely tea set like last time. There was no introduction of the pastries either. The soaked-cherry cake on the right was not my cup of tea as I never liked soaked cherries. The other two were both chocolates. I thought the one on the left-most was some jelly. The chocolate in the middle was filled by some chocolate cream inside. 

So our big feast was ended by loads of chocolates! 

Overall, it was a really good dining experience. I think the food quality was better than our last visit, while the better choice of bakeries and amuse bouche were really appreciated.  Service seemed to be better as well as they did clean the bread crusts on our table before serving our desserts and tried to pull the table out a little bit for us to get seated.  But not all servers did introduce our dishes in details when they served our dishes. I wish they could keep up their standards or even improve so that our dining experience could get better and better during our next visits. We would definitely be back!
